Superstar winemaker Alberto Antonini
consults for wineries on four continents and
makes this wine from his own Tuscan estate.
What You Need To Know
Before launching his high-flying
consulting business, Alberto Antonini gained fame as head
winemaker for Antinori, the vast family-run company that’s one of
Italy’s most important winemaking dynasties. At Poggiotondo,
Antonini’s own Chianti estate, he focuses on a handful of modernstyle
Chianti wines made from grapes grown on the property,
which is located in the golden, cypress-studded hills halfway
between Florence and Pisa. This riserva is a step up from
Poggiotondo’s basic Chianti: Antonini makes it from the best
grapes of the vintage, ages it longer and boosts its fruity intensity
by adding Merlot.
Cherry liqueur and
Dense and savory,
with deep plum and
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be

Made to drink with food,
and especially good with
seared, braised or roasted
meats and hearty pastas.
